I think a good sign of talent is how easy they make race winning speed look.

No one made it look easier then Everts IMO. Especially in deep sand.

McGrath even though I hated him because I'm a big Emig fan. Emig only cleaned up in 97 because MC switched to the pos Zook with the upside down forks a few weeks before the season started. He lost Skip as his mechanic and got Wyatt Seals as a replacement, who ended up letting it get to his head and became a lush.

Some dude called J-law who rolled a car in the pits, arrived to a National with a hangover and straight up beat some guy called Ryan Villopoto?

JMB ... def one of them , won MXGP , SX , Le Mans and raced MotoGP

Gobert went robbing oldies to get money for drugs, wasn't he? Pity he ended up this way.

You're all wrong, Herlings is the most talented rider to throw a leg over a motorcycle.

Raced Anthony a few times he was incredible. At Laidly Aus titles in the 90’s he won every class he raced in even the 4s back then on a stock xr80. Paid pro at 15 then only to let it get to his head in road racing getting caught 2 times smoking pot at team Suzuki could have been the next Mick Doohan. The Goshow as we called him. He won MX SX and flat track and road bike titles.

James Stewart and Travis Pastrana, Josh Hill all in that order....nobody could handle a bike like js7. Nobody has the balls of Pastrana and Hill just flat out has the skill set of both without the success rate of either. Windham is the only other rider I can think of even close to those 3 when it comes to pure talent.

Best two wheel rider ever, if he went to the usa to race sx instead mcgrath would have zero titles. No jks.

Fucking deadshit though.

Yep seen it on tv out of the blue one day, he rocked up to court wearing the same faded black monster energy shirt that he was wearing in the security footage, and denied it was him.

I like trying to compare the two different sports, because there are are close parallels between riders like Sam Hill and Js7. like when Hill crashed at Val Di sole while 8secs up I thought God dammit Sam don't do a bubba.

I might have to agree with you on the Gobert call. I remember watching him keeping pace with Jeff Emig when Jeff was in his prime at Perris Raceway back in the day. Marc Marquez does some pretty amazing things on a bike, too. He seems to crash and pick the bike back up mid crash with his elbow at least once a weekend.
